Mix - Fake News: You Were Born For Stardom's Crown

Medium: Television
Fandom: The Daily Show
Subject: Kristen Schaal/Olivia Munn
Title: You Were Born For Stardom's Crown

Olivia's fiery hotness often obscures the fact that she is a raging geek. Kristen is an adorable ginormous dork even when she's writing a sex book. Now watch me turn these facts into a shippy mix about Olivia's ascent to TDS, in defiance of the fact that they have yet to appear on screen together.

Graphic textures; cover art.

Pink Floyd // Have A Cigar
Some of Olivia's pre-TDS career has what you might call a skeevy undercurrent.

Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar
You're gonna go far, you're gonna fly high
You're never gonna die
You're gonna make it if you try
They're gonna love you

Well, I've always had a deep respect
And I mean that most sincerely...

You gotta get an album out
You owe it to the people
We're so happy we can hardly count...
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy
We call it Riding the Gravy Train

Fleetwood Mac // Silver Girl
Even when she's wrapped up in geeky tech and math jokes, she has a way of keeping people at a distance.

She was a silver girl
Lost in a high tech world
She was a golden girl
Immersed in a hard core world
She would have preferred
The last generation
But that's all right
She is on her way

She had the Midas touch
She was Lady Luck
She's got a million bucks
And she looks like it
She's had a few hard times
Sometimes it blows her mind
Those papers she never signed
Sometimes she remembers

Sometimes she was just an actress
But you'll never really know
A shadow moves across her face
You cannot see her soul
Unless she lets you

Corinne Bailey Rae // Sexyback
Kristen is no stranger to hotness herself, though she can't help being quirky and eclectic about it. (Note: this song is a swing/jazz cover of the original.)

I'm bringing sexy back
Them other boys don't know how to act
I think you're special, what's behind your back?
So turn around and I'll pick up the slack...

Come here girl
Go ahead, be gone with it
Come to the back
Go ahead, be gone with it
Go ahead, be gone with it
Drinks on me
Go ahead, be gone with it
Let me see what you're working with
Go ahead, be gone with it
Look at those hips
Go ahead, be gone with it
You make me smile
Go ahead, be gone with it
Go ahead child

Elton John // Since God Invented Girls
And, let's face it, she can't switch off that wide-eyed girlish charm.

There may be seven wonders
Created for this world
But one is all we need
Since God invented girls

Higher on the heel, paler than pure cream
Leaner on the sidewalk
Cutting through the steam
After claws and feathers
He took skin and bone
Shaped it like an hourglass
And made the angels moan

Oh here's a little heat boys
To straighten out them curls
Now there ain't been no angels round
Since God invented girls

* ~ *

A Fine Frenzy // The Minnow And The Trout
Opposites attract!

Help me out, said the eagle to the dove
I've fallen from my nest so high above
Oh, help me fly
I am too afraid try
Now saddled with a fear of heights
I'm praying you can set me right...
And I said

Please, I know that we're different
But we were one cell in the sea in the beginning
And what we're made of was all the same once
We're not that different after all

We are tied in history
Connected like a family

* ~ *

Grant Lee Buffalo // The Whole Shebang
Kristen is not down with this whole "being exploited for your hotness but ignored as a person" deal.

Darlin' you can't live your life singing songs in exile
You were born for stardom's crown and not for self denial
So don't you close the door on fate when she comes to call
And tell her that you'll join her there at the masqueraders ball
Funny how some people never love at all

We'll take the whole shebang
All or nothing anything
Ecstasy's the birthright of our gang
We'll take the whole shebang
Free your heart of guilt and shame
Come and claim what's yours:
The whole shebang

* ~ *

Billy Joel // Uptown Girl
After all, it's the whole person that she's starting to fall for.

I'm in love with an uptown girl
You know I've seen her in her uptown world
She's getting tired of her high class toys
And all the presents from her uptown boys
She's got a choice...

Uptown girl
You know I can't afford to buy her pearls
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
She'll understand what kind of guy I've been
And then I'll win

* ~ *

Fefe Dobson // As A Blonde
Olivia decides to give this job a try. High necklines and all.

I was looking in the mirror, trying to find
A new reflection
Wanna take the road, less traveled in
A different direction
Make some new mistakes
Forget the ones I made
Cry some tears of joy
Dress more like a boy

I wanna I meet myself, as someone else
Just to see what it feels like
Take a walk, on the other side
Cause you know that I just might...

I'm tainted, I'm tired
Of being the same, yeah
I'm desperate, I'm bored
I'm begging for change
What if you're normal
And wanna be strange?

* ~ *

Aly & AJ // Like Whoa
Kristen the eternally cheerful.

Life is good, I can't complain
I mean I could but no one's listening
Your image overwhelms my brain
And it feels good, good, good

Now I'm rollin' my window down
I love the wind but I hate the sound
You're like a tattoo that I can't remove
And it feels good, it feels good, it feels good

Like a roller coaster ride
Holdin' on white knuckles like
Whoa whoa
Can't believe I'm like
Whoa whoa...

My inhibitions are beginning to let go
This situation I can't help but lose control
You're an affliction that I cannot seem to break
It feels good, it feels good

* ~ *

Taylor Swift // Fearless
She doesn't completely appreciate the effect this has on Olivia.

We're drivin' down the road, I wonder if you know
I'm tryin' so hard not to get caught up now
But you're just so cool, run your hands through your hair
Absent-mindedly makin' me want you

And I don't know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me headfirst, fearless
And I don't know why but with you I dance
In a storm in my best dress, fearless

* ~ *

Billy Joel // That's Not Her Style
There are rumors about Olivia. As long as she's a sexy young celebrity, there are always going to be rumors. Kristen knows which parts to ignore.

The papers say she was seen in L.A. with a stranger
She found a perfect body with a Maserati right outside
And then she chartered a Lear when she heard her career was in danger
And gave the pilot somethin' extra for a perfect ride

That's not her style
I can tell you that ain't my woman
That's not her style
I can tell you, because I'm her man

It's not that she's never done something crazy, done something wild
It's just that she's better at doing whatever suits her style

* ~ *

Lemon Demon // Geeks In Love
Dorky cosplay-filled dance-party OTPness!

Nobody's cool as we
Nor quite as esoterically far out
We're so far out it's creepy
I don't think they'll ever get
The groovy standards that we set for love
But they're not smart like we be

They have no roses
Subconsciously they envy us a lot
They're looking down their noses
At a couple of dorks with more love than they have got

When they see us holding hands
They wish that they were geeks in love
And when they hear our favorite bands
They wish that they were geeks in love
We rattle off our in-jokes while
They wish that they were geeks in love

* ~ *

Huey Lewis & The News // Finally Found A Home
Olivia has a feeling she's going to be doing this show for a long time. (...for purposes of this mix she does, anyway.)

It used to make me so fed up
People always asking me
What will you be when you grow up
You're gonna need security
Spent a little time in school
Wishing I was somewhere else
Having fun and acting cool
I just want to be myself...

Now everybody need a place
Even if it's on a stage
Eveybody needs a race
Something to help them turn the page

And I finally found a home
Where I'll never be alone
Right here where I belong
And I finally found a home
Here, in a song

* ~ *

Norman Gimbel & Charles Fox // Wonder Woman Theme
Sometimes, if you're gonna fight the good fight, you need to break out the star-spangled underoos. (Music ripped from this video.)

Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman
All the world's waiting for you
And the power you possess

In your satin tights
Fighting for your rights
And the old Red, White and Blue

Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman
Now the world is ready for you
And the wonders you can do

Make a hawk a dove
Stop a war with love
Make a liar tell the truth

Wonder Woman
Get us out from under, Wonder Woman
All our hopes are pinned on you
And the magic that you do
